Hi, everyone. I apologize for not being around lately. At the end of Nov I had an unexpected trip to the ER & an overnight. I’ve been dealing with something for years. I’ve had several appointments of late. Hopefully, we’re getting closer to figuring out what to do. I’m on different meds for now. We’re trying to avoid an operation. My husband has his own struggles. Not going into detail, as, we feel health is private. I just mentioned this, as, it’s the main reason I’ve been away for awhile.
I’m still continuing to volunteer at the local shelter with the kitties. It will be two years in July. Though, sometimes due to health, I need to curtail it. I still have my rescue & rehome (started Feb 2017) & lost/found (started Oct 2017) groups. A few weeks ago I took over a pet rescue page & a foster/adopt group. Even when I’m not on here, I’m involved with things pertaining to animals.
One being, collaborating on books. All of them will have animals. Either only or they include people. I’ve been writing stories since I learned how to write. I’ve always had the talent & ideas. A few times, I thought I was ready to pursue it as a career, not, just a hobby. It never took. Until a couple of years ago when I started volunteering at the shelter. That’s where my determination & inspiration came in. I published my first book three weeks ago. It will be part of a series. It’s 60 pages & is for all ages. It’s a cozy animal fantasy adventure. Please do check it out & share. Thanks. https://goo.gl/778ouE
The following is from my friend. It’s her & her family’s dog. I’ve been posting to various Facebook groups about it:
PLEASE SHARE! MISSING PITBULL!!!😔
Our blue nose pitbull named Royal is missing! She is super friendly but is very timid of strangers. She went missing around Peach street in Ukiah by Big Lots around 5 o’clock today(December 2nd). If anyone has seen her or may have her please contact me at (916) 844-8908. Our family really misses her and really appreciate your help. Thank you!
Hi, everyone. Hope that you all had a good Thanksgiving. I paid for a membership that would not include ads. I also don’t use any ad revenue programs to earn from. Not on this blog, anyway. Either they changed the membership & ads are now a part of it or something else happened. If anyone has any ideas, I’d appreciate it. I only want ads, if, I choose them. Which I didn’t.
I was at the shelter last, Fri, 10 to noon. That being my usual day & time to volunteer. Of the kitties that are currently available for adoption, we have one four year old & another that might be that age or a little older. Neither are seniors. As for the dogs, I don’t think we have any in that age range either.
Since cats can often live longer than dogs, especially if they’re indoor only, senior often starts for them at past 10. For many dogs, that age is their upper limit. So, being a senior for them is considered what the last 25% of their life is.
We have two senior kitties. Both 11. Though, the way they run around, chase & wrestle each other, you’d never know it. Do you have or have you had an older animal companion?
Hi, I don’t know how many of you on here are from CA & if there are any, if you’re in one of the affected areas. Those who aren’t from CA, many have friends and/or family who are or you have read about the fires. Do let me know you’re safe.
Ron (my husband) & I live about 10 miles south of Redwood Valley. That’s where one of the fires is located. Fortunately, we didn’t have to evacuate. We just saw & smelled the smoke. The air was thick with it. Some days the quality was in the dangerous zone.
For those that live around there, I’m sure you know, Coffey Park (Santa Rosa) was leveled. My aunt & uncle had lived on Espresso for 30+ years. My aunt passed a few years ago. My uncle recently moved to Monte Rio with his new wife. Which is good, because, he lost everything, but, thankfully not his life.
